Raleigh, NC – Boxcar Bar + Arcade will begin hosting monthly gaming tournaments for the local Extra Life guild, in an effort to help increase awareness, drive involvement and raise funds for the organization.
Extra Life is a non-profit organization supporting the Children’s Miracle Network, who works to raise funds by uniting gamers from all over the world in an annual 24-hour gaming marathon. “Extra Life is the perfect compliment to Boxcar, as we share a passion for both gaming and supporting charitable causes,” says Jerrad Bement, Operator at Boxcar Bar + Arcade.
Boxcar Bar + Arcade has supported Extra Life several times in the past as part of their weekly “Drink-For-A-Cause” event, held every Wednesday, where they donate 15% of sales to a select local charity. Bement anticipates these monthly tournaments will be a successful means of increasing awareness, stating that “Extra Life uses gaming as a way to resonate with people, and the Boxcar community resonates well with gaming”.
The first tournament hosted by Extra Life will take place on June 22, 2016 at Boxcar Bar + Arcade in Raleigh, and 15% of the day’s total sales will be donated to the organization. Stay tuned to Boxcar Bar + Arcade’s social media channels and website events calendar for more information.
